Urban Vegetable Garden

Here is a letter from one of our customers who has designed a very unique and well designed urban space and water saving garden that is watered with the wetpot watering system.

It is very inspiring for us to see such innovation with the wetpot watering system. I particularly like the way John has made use of vertical space with the hanging pots and he has made a garden which is raised above the ground for easy access. The use of recycled materials is also great to see.

Hi Joel,

The wetpots arrived yesterday all in good order.

Have attached two photos of our setup, have waited a few days before sending as the
day after planting was very hot and the plants took a big setback but tonight
they are looking much improved and are starting to grow.



The frame looks expensive but the steel came from our daughters alteration on the basement of her home and the wood is from a local recycling yard the rest is time to get it altogether. The watertank can slide up or down the post and lock in at the hight required while the hanging pots are standard pots with a steel band around them with hooks bent and welded to the band.

There is different types of plant containers on the bench being tried out the ceramic pots have tomatoes, the plastic bag strawberries, the plastic pots celery and parsley and the polystyrene box lettuce, one hanging pot has cucumbers in it. From now on I hope to grow from seed for a continues supply of vegetables and to expand the range of plants in the pots.

We have always had a verge garden but on long hot days it is hard to keep the water up to mature plants with water restrictions on so hope to solve that problem with wetpots and plants at a working height. Hope this is of interest to you as it is still early days and I have a lot to learn about this system.

Cheers,

The only suggestion I had for John was to put some type of shade material
over the water container, such as shade cloth or some type of material
cloth. This will prevent the black plastic container from heating up
in the sun.

It will be great to see more photos of Johns garden in the future. I
can picture it already with a bench full of plants and vines climbing
up over the top of the structure with fruit and vegies hanging down to
be picked.

Here is a another letter from John:

Hi Joel

You are welcome to make use of the photos and description for your website.
The pots are filled with a mixture of potting mix and home made compost, blood & bone
is added with chicken pellets and a little sulphate of potash any helpful hints on the mixture would be well received as growing vegies in pots is new to me.

I was very pleased to see not one plant collapsed in the high heat today so the wetpots must be getting the water to the right place, they would have suffered in the garden at this stage of there growth.

There are two large wetpots in the strawberries and the lettuces have one large and one small, two small would have done I think but only had one at the time, all the rest have a single wetpot.

Will send more photos as it all progresses.

Cheers,

Thanks John, keep up the great work! We look forward to seeing more photos of your garden in the future.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
